In Sunday's Washington Post, Jonathan Turley highlights ten sobering reasons why the United States is not the "land of the free".

Turley cites the following expanded powers that have dangerously eroded individual rights and liberties post 9/11:

  1. Assassination of U.S. Citizens
  2. Indefinite Detention
  3. Arbitrary Justice
  4. Warrantless Searches
  5. Secret Evidence
  6. War Crimes
  7. Secret Court
  8. Immunity from Judicial Review
  9. Continual Monitoring of Citizens
  10. Extraordinary
Sound familiar?  The ACLU continues to challenge every action on the list.
